the citizens of Ladysmith were arou-  everybody

and several hundred people weee
. .quickly on the scene of the fire. Several boys did good work in ringing
the alarm and in helping the volunteer fire brigade to get out the hose
carts, and get them to the scene of
tlie fire. Considering the long dis-
. tanee and the condition of the road,
for some places, as near thc corner
ol 1st Avenue and High Street it is
very bad, the fire department, with
Chief Smith in charge, got the hose
out in good time. It seemed some
time to onlookers, before the coupling
was .made and the two streams turned on, but time seems long under
such circumstances.
As the two streams struck the fire
���with terrific force, it was plainly to
be seen that the firemen would. be

not until after considerable damage
was done. The second Davis house
was uninjured, except from tlie

-These two athletes assert that tho
Eastern style ,of wrestling is not
���wrestling at all, but simply a method which gives chances for crippling
an,opponent with no other object in

they gave _' demonstration of the difference in - the two styles. They endeavored to show that the purpose
of jiu-jitsu has nolnerit in legitimate
wrestling, in which sport tricks such
as breaking fingers, arms, legs, the
strangle, and other dangerous holds,
are not allowed.
Jenkins and Bothner both claim
that the recent demonstrations of jiu
jit.su in the municipal and other departments of the city have all been
made upon men . who stood lamblike
and camly awaited the onslaught.
The Japanese exponent was permitted to take holds which, when used,

The probably unavoidable accident

government.'   According to a high official of thc Rm-baasy, whom the Daily Chronicle interviewed, the present
moment is considered     most opportune to     arrive at such an    understanding,  the    Russo-Japanese    war
having* entiiely changed  the political
situation.     Germany,      this   official
says,     had    reason-.to consider  the
Franco-Russian   Alliance  as  directed
against herself,  and in  that case the
motive     of German    overtures     to
France   might   have   been   misjudged.
Now,  however,-it will be impossible
for Russia to     engage in war    with
Germany for years to' come, even   if
she wished, and  tlterefore if the spirit of revenge is buried  there is nothing     to     prevent      Germany and
France inaugurating an era-of peace
and good will.     ���     ��� -,l

has concluded that her time on this

Despitehcr feebleness of frame, for

that   General  Linevitch,   while     reported to withdraw to Harbin, will
attempt to hold the line from Kuan-
changtze to Kirin, so as to control
the rich Sungari  valley as a source
of supply for the army.   A Japanese
advance to  Kirin  would   be equivalent to the isolation of Vladivostock.
The war office points to the fact that
General  Linevitch was  able to give

WEDNESDAY,  MARCH   24,  ���������'ioi  IN YELLOWSTONE PARK. -  "Buffalo Jones," whose coirecf,  name is Col. C. J. Jones, came on  to Washington a few days ago from  the Sportsmen's Exposition in Madison Square, New Viuk, to secure  iiulhoiify for tlie extension of his  pet "buffalo pen" in the Yellow-  si one  park.     Incidentally,   Mr. Jones  wanted funds to cairy out his project, lie laid his plans before President Roosevelt and there is a good  chance for favorable action.  Al, (he present lime (here aie tliu-  ty-niiie buffaloes roaming the fenced  aiea within the paik. In this connection, it is woitli while lo note  that ������������������the''number of captives has been  doubled during the past -yeai, but it  should also be stated that the increase is not due entirely to hntlis,  ���������Several cahes have been cap lined,  and a few mature, animals have been  purchased.'  A considerable area of good pasturage is required to keep Unity-  nine-buffaloes in good condition The  present inclosed space is not laige  i-nough, according to "tlie .'estimate  of Col. Jones, and he-hopes that lie  may he given funds to'stretch moie  wire. .-__'. '  Ranging at large in the national  preserve are twenty-five oi flinty  head of tlie. former nio-narchs of the  plains..- For the most pait, the\  arc in the higher mountains. Oidin-  . arily -there .would not; be . anything  specially --.significant iii' the statement  that the animals are now.living in  the higher places, hut when we loo!-  back,''not'many, .year's, to the turn  the railroad..first-.-invaded.,'the vast  plains of the'far West, and comptiu-  the home of the buffalo at that tiinc.  with what it is now, the idea of  ���������inimalsraccustoming themselves d,  new habitat is forcefully brought to  mind.  IVe have     always      thought   of Ihe  buffalo ��������� as  a plains  animal,''but     wc  now see     that   with   the  condition*  -���������hanged- it..'adapts itself to new con-  ���������lit.ioijs.   The same history applies to  ?Jie elk, more properly   wapiti, which  was driven from  the plain to     foothill and      finally  into  the mountain  fastnesses.     It is not, to be piesum-  ed,  however,   that in  the  days  when  ilie bulTaloes' overran  the  praines  it  did   not extend   its  wanderings    into  |jhe higher altitudes,  .. Many years ago it, was found      in  thc    Appalachian      mountain  legion,  wliich  extends  from  the intenoi     of  Maine, in New  England, to Alaba.ni,*.  in the South.     The great home    of  lhc   buffalo,   however,   was the  western  plains, and here they weie found  in great numbers even as late as 1871  Between    1870 and  18-80,   the   laltei  date bringing  thc completion   of  Un-  Northern Pacific,  railroad,  the slaugh  ter wrought by the hide hunteis was  something'terrible  and   it was     not  long before  the  public'commenced to  perceive that the buffalo, or    Ameii-  can bison,  was fast approaching   extinction.  At the present time, the'only wild  herd in existence, so far as l\ know,  is that which roams in the \. region  of the'Great'Slave Lake. Tli-v herds  in captivity are those owned hy the  New York Zoological Society and  those whicli are found in the preserves in New Hampshire established !by-  Austin Corbin. Unless my memory  fails me, James J. Hill, of the Orca  Northern, has done something in flu-  way* of preserving the buffalo. On  that point, however, I have not. suf-  fic-ent knowledge to speak definitely.  In the national zoo, here in Washington, there arc some good specimens  of  pure-blooded  bisons.  One strong argument iu favor of  Col. Jones' pica for more money to  ox-lend lhe grazing area of I lie Yellowstone Park herd, is that (lie buffalo deteriorates when kept in preserves, unless (lie space in which he  roams i.s very large. II is true that  ��������� here i.s no little lail' at the present  time about keeping down public expenditure, but Lt is also a fact that  if wc we are going to preserve a remnant of the former king of the  plains, the ordinary expenditures reel ui red in such a movement should  he met cheerfully.  Col. Jones is eminently .qualified to  speak on the .subject, of the -buffalo.  As his nickname indicates, he has  given much of his time to this animal. I presume that in the early  days lie was not   over-careful  as     to  Are You  Qoing East  Then be sure your tickets read   via  the  my of the bufialo, wapiti and deer.  It is to be regretted that the legislature cf the state of Washington  passed over the lecommendalion of  the Washington Dish and Game Protective Association that a bounty be  placed on the head of this sly, but  bin none the le-iS powei ml game des-  lioyei." 1 firmly believe that, one full  grown cougai will do moie damage  in the Olympic mountains during a  ve.u than half a dozen lawless hunters.  Speaking of thc dangers to    which  the buffaloes of tlie Yellowstone park  aie   exposed,   Col,   Jones  said     that , through    trains     from    the     Pacific  the  mo*.t serious menace lo  the herd tCoast.

Kir ii .'tan.ee,  thc Ext.nsioei  Mines,     11  miles   - from Ladysmitli,  from   which  the highest grade coal  - for domestic purposes on the Pacific  coast is shipped, is known by borings  and      general -prospecting  to  extend  .near to the city of'Lad)smith.    \As  representing this  industry  it   might  be mentioned that, the coal shipped/  from lhc Island, to date, *amcti..t_ :���������;  19,940,587 tons, with a vaU'c of $1.0,-  203,28.r),     and  149,556 ton1* of (o'o,  with a value of $947,780, a total of  $Cl,151,0fi5  Timber.  . (b.). The value of -.the immense timber resources     of, Vancouver Island,  with its high class Douglass'ftrj cedar etc., has-already been realized by  '  the great lumber companies. The Vie-  toria^Lumber Company, of Chcmain-  ub, has among its membeis slue v. d  Wisconsin and Michigan lumber kings  who have     secured,  and  now  hold,  hundreds of millions of feet of splendid timber and ,are continually-    increasing  thsir holdings.    Their     export trade now running from -30,000,-  000 to 50,000,000     of-feet'per year  will no doubt be largely increased by  the beginning of work on tlie Panama  canal, for the demand, which will tie  supplied largely from this section for  timber to' ua'a on" the^great work, will  amount to hundreds 61 millions     of  feet.     Other    companies,  Shawnigan  Lake,  Haslam and other conir aides .  are turning out large quantities    of  lumber  and  shingles. .'  Harbors and Waterways,  (c.)    Harbors and .waterways     in  connection  with Vancoiner -Island-is  a subject understood much  better by  "men who,"ga down tolsea'l,._ than  landsmen.   But opposite to'the mainland 'and direct- across' from';yaricou-  ver,     Oyster Harbor or  Ladysmiih  Bay, has long'been known .as a safe"  aiid commodious-harbor.-'.It is    one  where large'wharves are. already established in connection .with-the coal  export trade     and with the^;freight  business, as the point of "transfer by  the C.P.R. for the Island freight. In  connection  with  this matter  it     is  worthy of remark that for tlie last  three years the transfer barge     has  made Its daily trip and has rarely, is  cv2r, been dehajed or. 3gCCO_nt of bad  weather  or     unfavorable  conditions,  and has never met with an accident.  Nanaimo     IJarbof",     Departure Bay,    Mining.  In connection with tho mineral developments of the Island, it must'be  understood that only during the past  five years has any attempt at metal  mining been made on a large scale.  On the west coast of the Island, beginning at East Sook, mineral: has  been - found and small "-shipments  made from San Juan, Port Renfrew-,  Alberni,' . Uchueklesit, ' Clayoguoit;  Kennedy Lake, Taferno Inlet/ (Deer  Creek), Bedweelr Sound, '(Bear,-River), Trout River, Clayoquoit Sound,  Sidney -Inlet/' Ahoiisett, _Ahatlasett,  Nootka, ' Kyuquot and * Quatsiuo,  while in the middle of .the Island at  Central lake a* large deposit of "mineral has recently been discovered.  Thc schist beds lying to the south  of the  coal' measures and  commonly  known as the Mt. Sicker schist belt,  extends  from Mt.  Sicker up to   the  Nanaimo Lakes which' has  been   opened and worked at seven points,   a  distance of 40  miles: ' Namely,  , Mt.  Sicker, Mt. .Brciiton, Chemainus, Ma-  juba,  Rhinehardt,      Nanaimo Lakes,  and, L/nglislimans River.    Owing     to  the     fact,   that thc  land  is  heavily  timbered, , prospecting' is necessarily  slow     and     expensive, great importance must be attached to the   cutting of  trails  inland  from   the  railroad.     As .the result of such a trail,  three years ago, from Ladysmith   6;  miles out,  several" mineral  locations  have been .made iu that vicinity, in- I  eluding  the < - Majuba, and extending f  west to the    Rhinehardt'and Nanai-  Lakes property,    '   It wouldj.appear  to be of lhe first importance to cut  trails in order to open up the country to the,prospector. , The opening  up of this mineral belt and the development of the mineral claims      will  follow the construction of a   branch  road, and' the route from Mt.. Sicker  and Mt.  Brenton up the Chemainus  valley appears thc most feasible   as  it would follow along the line of the.  claims -   mentioned  to  the  Nanaimo.  Lakes,  on to and including  Alberni.  It is stated     that     the Nanaimo;  Lakes  properties have  large     showings     of ore and would undoubtedly  make producing mines with  railroad  facilities,     but hot'until these    are  provided can they ship out ore - for  treatment.

Included  in   fanning  stock raising is  becoming a mai ked  feature in. Island  development.   High  grades of     cattle  are  being     raised  from inported stock,  and  the better  and cheese  of  Vancouver   Island     is  now well known for its  high  grade.  -,    j .   Hunting and  Fishing.  .   The big game of  Vancouver  Island  has not been hunted extensively and  is abundant in'certain sections.  Deer  and other four-footed game is found  in ail parts of the Island.        Ducks,  geese,     pheasants,  grouse  and  (mail  are to be found in season  in     numbers that'.gladden the heart of    the  hunter.    With the development.' that  will  result  from  .the   extension     of  thc lines of the E. ������fe N.     Railway,  North, Vancouver Island will increase;  its wealth many fold.   Mines will be  opened and other natural sources   of  wealth     now  valueless,      will, .with  transportation,  soon  prove  to      the  world that as a whole  there i.s    no  other.part of the rich Province     of  British  Columbia     that  can     equal  Vancouver .Island.  ������hewan River claims are either bar  or bench, the former being 100 feet  I long and extending between high a,nd  gl i low water mark.

FAST. BOAT. ;'  Much interest' was aroused at the  Sportsmen's Show ,, at Madison  Square Garden," New/,York, recently,  by an exhibition of the model of a  new type of boat which, according  to the 'inventer, Fritz' II. Grawert.-  Zcllin, who says he is a naval engineer,-of (il East. Eighty-sixth. St.',  will develop an ocean speed of sixty miles an hour. The little boat  was placed in the lake at the Garden, aiid afier its speed was shown,  towed a thirty-foot launch around -  the Garden.  The inventor declares that a vessel built after the model will revolutionize shipbuilding. He hopes to  obtain the. speed through a combination of a new type of ship, new type  of propeller, .and a "keel propeller."  The G-rawert turbine, he says;-will  be only half'the size of the smallest  machine now used for the size of the  vessel. While it. is an explosion engine of thc rc-'tary type, the pistons  arc mounted directly.-on the. shaft  whicli carries the'scr-ew," and the explosion chamber, is  within  the cylin-  Oiie of which is the famous "North  Coast Limited," Ride on it always.

The revolutions performed by tiiis propeller are '���������'>,500  a minute, and the inventor asserts  thai a very high speed i** obtained  by this small blade because of its  situation   amidships.
